Pittsburg, Kansas (PRWEB) July 8, 2010
Data Technique, Inc. will contribute its real-world expertise on cloud computing security and integration issues to a special advisory council being convened by CompTIA, the non-profit trade association for the information technology (IT) industry.
CompTIA’s special two-day meeting scheduled for July 2010 will define the skills necessary for deploying and managing SMB cloud infrastructure projects and services. The industry association plans to use the contributions of the advisory council to help develop future education and certification materials focused on cloud computing and software as a service (SaaS).
“A challenge with any emerging technology is assuring that there is an IT workforce in place with the requisite skills needed to successfully deliver the technology to customers,” said Dan Liutikas, Senior Vice President, Industry Relations, CompTIA. “Cloud computing holds great promise for our industry and our customers, but before that promise can be realized we need to close the education gap that exists today about cloud computing. With the help of organizations such as Data Technique, CompTIA intends to do just that.”
IT services firm, Data Technique, is one of a representative group of leading vendors, resellers and consultants with real-world cloud computing experience that have been invited to share their knowledge at the council meeting.
“Data Technique is honored to contribute its practical, first-hand knowledge of cloud identity management and infrastructure integration issues to this special CompTIA forum. We believe our perspective about legacy integration challenges, and about the issues you will encounter when switching to cloud services, will be valuable,” says Terry Calloway, Founder and President of Data Technique.
Data Technique’s ConneXcloud offering uses identity management technology to integrate the popular Google Apps cloud suite into a school’s or business’s existing databases and applications. With ConneXcloud, schools or businesses can use a single interface to create and administer user accounts and ensure that information is shared securely. Google Apps is a cloud service that replaces the need to use an on-premise e-mail and collaboration server.
